HKHS "T-Home" at Chun Seen Mei Chuen Receives Over 1,600 Applications
The application for "T-Home" Transitional Housing Scheme at Chun Seen Mei Chuen (CSMC) of Hong Kong Housing Society (HKHS) was closed on 10 March. A total of 1,650 applications have been received, of which 850 are from 3-person households, 658 from 4-person households and 142 from 5-person households.
Computer balloting for the applications will be conducted on 24 March to determine the priority numbers of applicants for flat allocation. Based on the applicants' priority numbers and family size, invitation will be sent to the applicants for vetting and flat allocation. Applicants who accept the offer of flat assigned will be required to sign the Licence Agreement, and the first batch of successful applicants is expected to move in in the second quarter of 2021. All applicants will only be offered one chance of flat allocation. If the applicant refuses the offer or fails to turn up for the flat allocation procedures, the application will be cancelled.
CSMC is currently under redevelopment planning, hence HKHS has ceased the re-allocation of vacant units. Instead, the vacant units are renovated and converted into transitional housing for meeting the needs of low-income families, in a bid to optimise existing housing resources. There are about 20 units in the first batch of "T-Home" at CSMC, while more units may be available for the same use before redevelopment of the estate.
Applicants may call the Scheme Hotline 8103-0330 for enquiries. Details of the Scheme are also available at the website https://www.hkhs.com/en/application/t-home.
